Everyone might be all excited about the new Pixel phones from Google running Android 7.1, but not everyone is prepared to buy a brand new smartphone just to get the newest operating system just yet. If you’re rocking a Motorola phone from the last couple years, you could be in luck because the company has just formally announced which devices are eligible for the Android 7.0 Nougat upgrade.

That’s the good news. The bad news is that they’re not being terribly specific about when each of these devices will be getting the Android N treatment. What they will say is that the new Moto Z and the 4th-generation Moto G are the first in line and they should be getting Nougat starting in Q4 of this year. The rest of the phones should follow some time after that.

Remember that eligible Nexus devices got the first official taste of Nougat back in late August, but we all know how this Android upgrade process feels for everything other than a Nexus/Pixel device. Here is the full list of Nougat-eligible phones from Motorola.

  • Moto G (4th Gen)
  • Moto G Plus (4th Gen)
  • Moto G Play (4th Gen)
  • Moto X Pure Edition (3rd Gen)
  • Moto X Style
  • Moto X Play
  • Moto X Force
  • Droid Turbo 2
  • Droid Maxx 2
  • Moto Z
  • Moto Z Droid
  • Moto Z Force Droid
  • Moto Z Play
  • Moto Z Play Droid
  • Nexus 6

Look up your phone specifically on the software upgrades page for more information. Most of the eligible phones say that they’ll get Nougat “pending partner support.”

Did your Motorola smartphone make the cut? Or are you forever stranded in Marshmallow-land?
